Close, but not quite :)

For reference:

--build : Architecture building the software (mingw on Linux here)
--host: Architecture running the software (windows, or mingw as far as
the build tools are concerned)
--target: Output architecture of the software (only for tools generating
architecture dependent code, such as compilers, so not applicable here)

So try changing to --build and be more specific about your arch. This is
the configure string I use:

./configure --enable-ltdl-install --build=i386-pc-mingw32msvc
